la roche posay cicaplast baume
I use this as a night moisturizer in the winter and to repair acne scars (moisturizing has shown minor improvements in healing). it’s less greasy than most moisturizers of this caliber though it still leaves skin shiny so I wouldn’t use it during the day nor under make up. i’ve also had the least amount of clogged pores and break outs with this which i’m very pleased to report. when my skin is dry/flakey due to acne treatments or the harsh Canadian winter, I use this for one night and my skin is back to normal. I’ve seen this recommended and used to great efficacy following procedures, as well as following sunburns.
As compared to Avene cicalfate, I think it’s less moisturizing, a little more hydrating and blocks pores less. It’s better for younger skins but the Avene is better for drier skin types.
